    I want quickchat to be able to use the avatars uploaded by the local avatar plugin.

    This shouldnt be that hard? My users are petrolheads and can dismantle a engine with blindfolds, but arent that well explored around a computer.

    Hence, i dont want to expose them to gravatar. :P

    Yes true it isn't hard to support it but it might impact Quick Chat performance since fetching gravatars can be done on client side only and doing it trough proper WP means (and supporting local avatars) must be done on server side. I've implemented it for upcoming 3.00 series so we'll see how it goes.

    Sounds good Marko. Do you have an estimate of when version 3 will be ready to go?

    Hello again, I'm currently in a hospital so I'm not in position to release Quick Chat at the moment 3.00 even though it is 99% finished. I just need to update FAQ to reflect new features. I should be released from hospital in a few days (should be but you nevef know with doctors) so QC 3.00 should follow. By the way 3.00 is really great release, here's change-log draft:

    = 3.00 (xx.xx.2012.) =
    * Implement private chat feature
    * Implement download chat room transcript feature
    * Implement message input box character counter
    * Add support for local avatars uploaded using local avatars plugins
    * Add "Private chat options" admin options section
    * Add "Logged in users can initiate private chat" admin option checkbox (default disabled)
    * Add "Guest users can initiate private chat" admin option checkbox (default disabled)
    * Add "Maximum number of characters for each message" admin option (default 250)
    * Add "User avatar size (pixels)" admin option (default 250)
    * Move destination language for translation next to the chat user name input box
    * Temporarily remove "Keep total number of messages inside every chat room automatically around this value" admin option because of conflict with private chat code
    * Make string comparison when checking usernames case insensitive
    * Fetch messages and users exclusively using Ajax calls after page is loaded to increase page loading time
    * Optimize user update Ajax code for users with multiple chat rooms on the same page (one call total instead of one call per chat room)
    * Prevent users from having separate chat user names when having multiple chat rooms on one page
    * Split Javascript code into multiple files and load separate parts based on user status and enabled features
    * Fix a bug with translation language select with multiple chat rooms on same page not in sync
    * Most of Quick Chat code rewritten to support new features and to increase performance

    My best regards,
